"The New America will work for all us!"
Miguel Perez with Casa De Maryland (in back) recounted his family's experience with immigration enforcement and introduces Representative Chris Van Hollen (at podium). The congressman says administration wants to harness the energy of the election. "Yes, we will make the change we need!" Dr. Hoffman Brown leads a back and forth between community partners. "We are no longer going to ask if we can sit at the table 'cause we OWN the table now!" Now he asks each of us "Are YOU ready for a new America?!"
Everybody's on their feet cheering. You can feel the pulse of the room: everyone is excited, ready to see real change. I feel it. I'm ready!
